Cotswold Cottage–Kitchen

Kitchens are always the heart of the house. I painted this one soft blue to match the tile paper I found and used as the wainscoting.

The short hall goes to the back door. The door to the “basement” I made from a paint stirring stick. It was exactly the right width. Cut it to height, painted, stuck on a doorknob and trim!

I fill my houses with pieces I make and pieces I buy. The trestle table and settle were kits (I believe Cassidy Creations). I purchased the donuts and bowl of pears but made the oranges in the bowl plus the orange slices.
The stove and fridge are actually magnets meant to go on a full-size fridge.

I made all the cabinetry and counters from scratch. The Scale Cabinetmaker has these in a collection of half-inch scale furniture plans.

I renovate and update my houses when I find new things or just want to rearrange. I recently added a cookie-baking setup from Desert Mini Makers, a new rug (which is a swatch left over from when I was in a fabric club in my sewing days), plus I’ve added some pottery by Jane Graber to the top of the cabinets.

A yummy-looking cheesecake by Desert Mini Makers was added to the table.

Kitchens should always be warm, welcoming, and smell of baking things!
